IGNITE Santa Fe!!
RAISE YOUR VOICE
Speak Your Truth - larger and louder than words thru giant puppets and art for the streets!
Wise Fool is excited to offer our first ever IGNITE! street theater arts intensive workshop - a re-imagined version of our popular community puppet builds and processions from years past. IGNITE! 2017 intensive for adults and teens will run from August 27 to September 9th, 2017 on weeknights and Saturday afternoons. In this two-week workshop participants will learn how to build giant puppets, stilt-walk, design and paint banners and other large scale visuals, as well as exploring storyboarding, choreographic pageantry, and character for outdoor spectacles, demonstrations and community events. IGNITE! will also include two public community puppet builds and will culminate in a procession and performance at the AHA Festival of Progressive Arts on the weekend of September 16 and 17.

The program is open to adults and teens (14+). Absolutely no experience necessary! Space is limited so sign up early to reserve your spot!

Cost of the program is $350. Tuition assistance and payment plans are available.
